T-45C TS, ADV, & IUT RIFP-02
TACAN and VOR Procedures
To prepare you for the RI hands-on lessons and the Airways
Navigation block, this lesson will review several TACAN/VOR
procedures already presented in previous BI and INav lessons.
Your return to the ship at night will be facilitated by a TACAN, or
ACLS. The requirement to fly the approach with precision is
paramount to a safe recovery, and the first step in achieving the
needed precision is a thorough knowledge of the procedures.
After this lesson, you will have reviewed the basic enroute radio
navigation procedures for SIDs, radial/bearing intercepts, arcing,
point-to-point navigation, ground speed checks, time/distance
checks, voice procedures, and direct routing.
In this lesson we will be reviewing procedures for:
Standard instrument departures (SIDs)
Flying a TACAN/VOR DME arc
Indications of TACAN/VOR/VOR DME station passage
Computing ground speed using TACAN/VOR DME
Correcting for wind drift using TACAN/VOR/VOR DME
TACAN/VOR DME point-to-point navigation
Proceeding direct to a station
